While I was in Portland a few weeks ago for the Safeway Classic Presented by Coca-Cola, Birdies for Pit Bulls made a visit to the Multnomah County Animal Services to spend some time with their Pit Bulls. Located just outside Downtown Portland, Stephanie Collingsworth gave us the grand tour of this fantastic shelter.
This week LPGA Tour player Mollie Fankhauser and Birdies for Pit Bulls made a stop at Pitty Love Rescue in Rochester, New York. Pitty Love Rescue was started three years ago by Jenn, a local to the Rochester area.
This past weekend, Birdies for Pit Bulls had a visit with Rescuzilla in Manhattan, NY. Rescuzilla is a dog rescue that takes in all dogs from New York City, with 90% being Pit Bulls. All of the Rescuzilla dogs are housed in foster care until they are adopted out so they are "house ready" upon adoption. Rescuzilla was founded by Susan Cava after many years of volunteering at several NYC dog rescues. Susan also works with Alfonso Sawadan, the resident dog trainer.
LPGA Tour player Mollie Fankhauser had a play date in the park with pups from the Mayday Pit Bull Rescue in Phoenix Thursday. While Fankhauser is teeing-it-up this week at the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup for the Measle's Animal Haven Pit Bull Rescue in Columbus, Ohio, she has plans to visit pit bull rescues in every community in which she plays this season.
